Man crush: Arnold Schwarzenegger

He’s back, baby.

Arnold Schwarzenegger flexed his way into our collective consciousness way back when and, it seems, he's there to stay. He was Mr Universe five times over and a self-made millionaire before Hollywood could even try to spell his name. He’s The Terminator, Conan The Barbarian and, weirdly, Kindergarten Cop.

But wait, because with Schwarzenegger there’s always more: he’s an actor, director, producer, filmmaker, businessman, philanthropist, hunter of Predator, professional bodybuilder and politician. Unfamiliar with his work? Pumping Iron, should be your first port of call.

When Rolling Stone interviewed him in ‘78, he hadn’t lost a bodybuilding comp in eight years and counting.

“Around the time of grammar school I had this incredible desire to be recognised,” he told them.

“I got the feeling that I was meant to be more than just an average guy running around, that I was chosen to do something special.”

And special he is. Be it as Danny DeVito’s significant other, or the man charged with watching over the West Coast.

So, in the interests of getting a little more physical, here’s some retro-fee work out sweats to pump that iron in.
